The new Bioloid Premium Humanoid robot kit is just coming on the market. It’s been a long, but well worth it, wait. The performance of the robot looks outstanding, and finally we’re seeing robots with real style and design features from Robotis
One of the things that has us really turned on about the Premium Robot Kit is its new controller with 6 external, general purpose input/output ports and ADC support. That feature should make using analog sensors are really pleasure.
As a demonstration of its capabilities, the robot was equipped with an analog distance measurement sensor. This allowed the robot to sense when large objects approached and respond accordingly. In this case it recognizes a large ball, and manages to pick it up and throw it back. Pretty darn cool.
